Motor unit

What is a motor unit?

A motor unit includes the motor neuron found within the anterior horn of the spinal cord, its axon, the neuromuscular junction, and the associated muscle fibers supplied by the axon. The electrodiagnostic physician can utilize a combination of needle EMG, NCS, repetitive stimulation, and other electrophysiologic tests to assess the individual components of the motor unit.
